Eddie couldn't be described. You just had to know him. Both jumper and an incredible jump pilot from way back. Uncanny ability to fly and spot loads. Moonless night, IFR, Eddie says get out, you'll be in the peas. no question.
Blues skies captain. you will be missed.

True statement. I go to Pepperell on my honeymoon to jump, I'm asking about the spot and Fran says "When Captain Eddie opens the door, thats the spot." Uhh, oookay, I think.

Sure enough, 10K, Captain Eddie opens the door and son of a gun, thats exactly the spot.

And every time thereafter.
